The Cylinder Archive [ www.cylinder.de ] release for January 2015: The US Marine Band was highly active making recordings on the 1890's. This version of the French national anthem  La Marseillaise was recorded in 1897 for Columbia. This particular vintage appears to often suffer from low volume, possibly caused by a softer wax composition that was used for a short time. Nevertheless, the band comes still out at a very enjoyable level.

The Cylinder Archive [ www.cylinder.de ] release for December 2012: Carl Nebe with his Nebe-Quartett recorded a great variety of Christmas selections on cylinder record. Two of the songs feature a rare recording of a children's choir. The recently instroduced 4-minute cylinders now easily allowed a medley that would include much more than just two songs. These songs are included in this medley: Es ist ein Ros entsprungen ( English translation 'Lo, How a Rose E'er Blooming' ) Stille Nacht (...

An early Edison cylinder (#535) from approx. 1897-98. 'The Forge in the Forest' was composed by Theodor Michaelis under the German name 'Die Schmiede im Walde'. The recording set up for this one was definitely not the best as the triangle drowns out a lot of the other instruments.

The Cylinder Archive [ www.cylinder.de ] release for July 2013: The French Comic Opera supplied a great repertoire for the classical Edison recordings. This one pre-dates the Grand Opera Series from 1906, was recorded in 1904 and released as an Edison Gold Moulded cylinder. Altough some quite audible surface noise, the recording remains overall crisp and clear. The cylinder is self-announced by Cécile Merguillier herself.
